Solid Pre-finished Hardwood Flooring – for minimum fuss and disruption of your home.
Installing a solid pre-finished hardwood floor is a great choice for those of us who wish to have their hardwood floors installed without having to deal with any of the hassles associated with sanding and finishing newly installed hardwood floors.
Factory Prefininished wood flooring comes ready to install and requires no sanding or finishing. This wood is precision-milled which minimizes board-to-board mismatch in heights. These uneven boards are usually leveled off with a sander during the finishing process. Prefinished hardwood flooring come with a small bevel machined into each edge of the board to hide any differences in board-to-board height. This helps to give the floor a uniform appearance.
The factory finishing process is a multi-step process in which the individual floor boards are sanded, stained, sealed and protected. Many of today’s high-tech finishes include a UV-curing stage that hardens the finish, this makes it more resistant to scuffing and scratching . The factory-controlled environment includes stringent quality-control steps that must be adhered to, resulting in a uniform, consistent application. Some manufacturers, include an extra step in their finishing process called a “full face fill”—this attention to detail seals the pores of the wood enabling the manufacturer to produce an ultra-smooth, even, beautiful sheen that cannot be duplicated on-site.
Pre-finished hardwood floors are ideal for the customer who wishes to save time, money, and wants to enjoy the benefits of a new hardwood floor immediately after it’s installed. Most jobs are completed in one day.
